Questions & Answers


Will this unit work with a multiple-zoned a/c? or would multiple units be required?

Asked by Rob March 4, 2021

Please give us a call at 800-879-0123 so that we can get additional information about your application. Your application sounds a little more complex. Hope to hear from you soon, Rob.

is the unit complete only ductwork remaining?

Asked by Herm February 13, 2021

This is a residental Forced-Air Electric Furnace, and it does require a new, or existing, properly sized ductwork system to operate properly. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 800-879-0123.

My house is 3100 sqr ft is there an eletric furnace that would work for my house and can a ac work for that size also using the original ducting that.

Asked by Bert January 25, 2021

You have an application that is beyond what we typically receive questions about. It would be best if someone local has a look at your current system and ductwork to determine sizing of the equipment and whether the duct system is adequate. Once you have the equipment recommendation from that company/contractor, give us a call with their equipment models and we will match it to our brand of equipment. We can be reached at 800-879-0123.

Asked by carlosamador January 24, 2021

22.5 in. H x 24.5 in. W x 21.5 in. D. are the dimensions of the air handler. The electric heat kit is designed to be installed into the air handler cabinet in the field upon installation. Upflow applications will require a field supplied return air base for side cold air returns.

Asked by Aisha December 19, 2020

Aisha, please give us a call at 800-879-0123 with the geographic location of your home, the sq. ft., and ceiling height information. Also, if you have any model numbers from the existing equipment, please have that available too. We will use all of those things to determine the best equipment that meets your application.

What is the total wattage consumed? What size breaker is needed?

Asked by Luke September 5, 2020

At 230 V, the unit is rated at 19.2 kW. The heat kit has 2- 60 amp double-pole breakers that must be wired to the same size breakers in your breaker panel. Hope this helps.

Do you have to buy a heat kit separate to make this work?

Asked by Nat June 21, 2020

The heat kit is included with the air handler to make up the electric furnace. The kit is separate, but easily installs into the air handler. Please feel free to give us a call at 800-879-0123 should you have any additional questions.
